I mean, we all need to hear this now and then, right?! (Since a couple of my knitting buddies didn’t know, I will explain: it means you have a nice derriere.) I think this would be a perfect card to send to a friend who’s feeling down and just needs to hear something nice about herself (or himself, idk), or to make and give to your husband so he can give it to you when you’re feeling particularly blah. Or when you’ve lost a little of that holiday weight. Anyway, a very useful encouragement card to have in your stash.
I made the background with Brusho crystals (yes, again! They’re so much fun!). For this one, I spritzed the area I wanted to cover with water (on watercolor paper), and then used Moss Green, Brilliant Red, and Gamboge sprinkled kind of randomly all over the card. I dabbed pools as they formed and tilted the paper all around to get good coverage. Once it dried, it just kind of looked like dragon fire to me, so I went with that and pulled out my new Magical Day bundle. This is my faaaaaaaaaaavorite bundle in the new catalog. I absolutely adore it and all the other accessories that come in the Myths & Magic suite. I colored the dragon with Blends (Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive, all in Light and Dark and with the Color Lifter) and cut her and her fire out with the coordinating dies. I made the sentiment with the Labeler Alphabet.
